Man accused of luring 13-year-old for sex

PHOENIX -

A man who was employed at an Ahwatukee recreational center has been arrested for luring a minor for sexual exploitation.

21-year-old Michael Hudson was arrested on Thursday and is facing charges of luring a minor, attempted child molestation, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The investigation first began on May 17. Phoenix Police say Hudson went to the home of the victim, a 13-year-old girl. He snuck into her bedroom through the window to avoid her parents.

Authorities say that Hudson provided the girl and two of her friends with alcohol, and then later tried to engage in sexual contact. She resisted his advances, so they continued drinking, the report says.

In the coming days, Hudson proceeded to engage texts with the victim in an attempt to lure her for sex, according to Sgt. Trent Crump.

Hudson worked at the city of Phoenix in a part-time position as a recreation leader. He met the victim two years prior when he was working at a summer camp that the victim attended. They stayed in contact since then through Facebook and text messaging.

The victim's father reported the texts to police and Parks and Recreation officials. Hudson resigned his position on May 21 prior to being fired.

The investigation is ongoing.

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
